Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap
Paris-based studio Lizardcube has released a new trailer for Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap, and it showcases a new playable character for this remake of the beloved classic. Are you ready to meet Wonder Girl?
Since the project for the Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap remake was announced, there’s been one constant question: will players be able to toggle between the game’s new look and the old-school original? Well, now there is an answer to that question: yes!
We’ve been following the development of Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap for PS4 from the moment it was announced, so we got in touch with Lizardcubed to talk about the game.
